          This is a BNL classic that I've never seen tabbed just right.  So here's my two cents.
          
          ***CAPO 2nd FRET***
          
          Chords used:
           
           Csus2 G/B Asus7 Am  Asus2 D  Dsus2 Dadd4 G  G/F# Em7 Bm C  Dadd9 Em Fm D/F# G6
          -0-----0---0-----0---0-----2--0-----3-----3--3----3---2--0--0-----0--2--0----0-

          Just a few notes here:
          1)  This is my first foray into the world of fingerpicking.  
          2)  Even with that, this is a pretty easy riff to do with a little practice.
          3)  To pull it off, you're probably going to have to alternate between fingerpicking and
          	using the actual pick.  Some of the changes are fast, and there's really no trick
          	to get better at it than just doing it over and over.
          
          Now that that's out of the way...
          
          
          This is the main riff of the song, fingerpicked over all the verses.
          (The last note is just a pickup for the repeat)
          
          Main Riff:
          
          e|--------0------------------------------0-------3----0----3-----------3----
          B|--3--------3---------------------3--------3-------------------2-----------
          G|-----0----------0-----0-----0--0----0-----------------------------------0-
          D|-------------------2-----0------------------------------------------------
          A|--3--------2-------0-----2-------3--------2---------0---------0h2---------
          E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
          
                                                                                        
          This is the riff for the last part of the verse leading into the chorus.  
          (The first half is fingerpicked and the second is played with a pick)
          
          Riff 2:
          
          e|--------0------------------------------------------------------------------2--3-
          B|--3--------3---------------------------------------------------------3--5-------
          G|-----0----------0-----0-----0--0----------------------------2--4--5-------------
          D|-------------------2-----0-------------------------2--4--5----------------------
          A|--3--------2-------0-----2-------5--------2--3--5-------------------------------
          E|------------------------------------3--5----------------------------------------
          
          
          Here is a little riff that's played in the bridge.
          
          Riff 3:
          
          e|--------------------------
          B|--------------------------
          G|--------0-----------0-----
          D|-----4-----4-----4-----4--
          A|--5-----------6-----------
          E|--------------------------
                                                                                        
          
          This is the riff that happens right before the outro.
          
          Riff 4:
          
          e|--------0------------------------------0-------3----0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--
          B|--3--------3---------------------3--------3---------3h55--5--3--5--3--1--0--
          G|-----0----------0-----0-----0--0----0---------------------------------------
          D|-------------------2-----0--------------------------------------------------
          A|--3--------2-------0-----2-------3--------2---------------------------------
          E|----------------------------------------------------------------------------
          
          
          Finally we have the outro riffs which end the song.

          INTRO:  
          
          Main Riff x 2
          
          VERSE 1:
          Main Riff
          The girl works at the store, sweet Jane  St. Clair.
          Main Riff
          Was dazzled by her smile while I shopped there.
          Main Riff
          It wasn't long before I lived with her.
          Riff 2
          I sang her songs, ah, while she dyed my hair.
          
          CHORUS 1:
          Am Asus2 Am  D Dsus2 D           
          Jane,          divided, 
          G      G/F#    Em7        D
          but I can't decide which side I'm on.
          Am Asus2 Am  D Dsus2 D
          Jane,          decided 
          G      G/F#    Em7        D
          only cowards stay while traitors run.
          Am Asus2 Am  D Dsus2 D   Am Asus2 Am  D Dadd4 D
          Jane,                     Jane.

          VERSE 2:
          Main Riff
          I'd bring her gold and frankincense and myrrh.
          Main Riff
          She thought that I was making fun of her.
          Main Riff
          She made me feel I was 14 again.
          Riff 2
          That's why she thinks it's cooler if we'd just stay friends.
          
          CHORUS 2:
          Am Asus2 Am  D Dsus2 D
          Jane           doesn't 
          G       G/F#      Em7  D
          think a man could ever be faithful.
          Am Asus2 Am  D Dsus2 D
          Jane           isn't 
          G      G/F#  Em7      D
          giving me a chance to be shameful.
          Am Asus2 Am  D Dsus2 D  Am Asus2 Am  D Dadd4 D
          Jane,                    Jane.
          
          BRIDGE:
          Bm         G                       C            Riff 3

          Em                  Fm               Bm
           That life could be better by being together,
                    C         Dadd9
          Is what I cannot explain to Jane.
          
          Main Riff
          
          VERSE 3:
          Main Riff
          The girl works at the store, sweet Jane St. Clair.
          Main Riff
          Still dazzled by her smile while I shoplift there.

          No promises as vague as heaven.

          No Juliana next to my Evan.

          by the people at her school and work.
          Am Asus2 Am   D Dsus2 D
          Jane            is tired, 
                 G      G/F#    Em7      D
          'cause every man becomes a lovesick jerk.
          Am Asus2 Am  D Dsus2 D  Am Asus2 Am  D Dadd4 D 
          Jane,                    Jane, c'mon.
